Actors are often asked to read cold in both auditions and in your preliminary meeting with an agent. Of course as actors we always want to do the best we can in the room and that’s why its imperative for actors to sharpen their cold read skills. Learn how to quickly pick up text with no time to prepare, break down the script and bring your best self to the audition room despite your lack of time with the material. Every week, students will be presented with new material based on a weekly theme. We will cover Commercial cold reads, TV, Film, Monologues and Voiceover. Little factoid: commercials are always cold reads! Actors will NEVER receive the copy in advance to prepare!

Can’t commit to all 12 classes? Come for one class, sign up for a few, or take all 12! Pay for all 12 at once, or pay by the class! Save $ when you commit to all 12-weeks!

Final Showcase: Students who can commit to all 12-Weeks will have perform their newly honed cold read skills in a Showcase for family and scouting Talent Reps!

When you purchase a class, we will follow up and see when you plan on attending. You can also drop by on Saturday and pay if there’s space! LEARN MORE

Payment Plans Available – please call our office at 212.315.3010 or email us to set up a payment plan today!

Work with powerhouse L.A. Talent Manager Mitchell Gossett of Industry Entertainment Partners in an online acting lab! Mitchell's storied success has allowed him to refer talent to agencies in NY, L.A. and across the USA.

Throughout his career as a manager and agent, Mitchell has repped, discovered and developed many noteworthy actors, including Jennifer Lawrence (THE HUNGER GAMES, SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK), Rachel Brosnahan (THE MARVELOUS MRS. MAISEL), Darren Criss (AMERICAN CRIME STORY, GLEE), Zendaya (THE GREATEST SHOWMAN, EUPHORIA), Kristen Bell (FROZEN 1 & 2, THE GOOD PLACE), Dylan Minnette (13 REASONS WHY), Kiernan Shipka (THE CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SERENA, MAD MEN), Jojo Siwa (DANCE MOMS), Miley Cyrus (THE LAST SONG, HANNAH MONTANA), Lucy Hale (PRETTY LITTLE LIARS) and many, many others.

Each week, participants will explore a set of values that, when present in an actor of any age, can help create a structure for great acting to occur. The nature of every actor's work springs from their unique instinct and memory. The work done in the Zoom Lab will playfully explore getting beyond "good" acting. We will discover how an actor’s instincts can emerge and be exercised in their work, and how this can inspire what makes up “great” acting.
